Zima, real name Olamilekan Samson Olaitan Adeyemi, is a Nigerian afro rap artiste.
Born on 21st February 1995 into a family of 5, it is during his secondary school days that Zima gained interest in music through a friend who used to lend him an Ipod to listen to latest songs.
His parents later pushed him to join the church choir where he learnt how to play drums and sing professionally.
One of his major influences when starting out was the late Nigerian rapper “Da Grin” who he listened to a lot before and after his death; he influenced his style of music which is rapping in his native language Yoruba.
He later got familiar with other successful Yoruba rappers like Olamide and Reminisce, which by listening to their music made him understand the game better.
This year, he has released two songs titled Elebolo and Kisa, both videos shot by Kenyan Video Director Richie G. The two songs are officially out and were released to the market and on YouTube in April 2018 and July 2018 respectively.
